‘ElfQuest’ journeys to bigscreen

Thorpe, Rhodes acquire movie rights to comicbook

“ElfQuest” may be headed for the bigscreen, with producers Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes acquiring movie rights to the 35-year-old comicbook series by Wendy and Richard Pini.

Thorpe and Rhodes, who produced “ElfQuest: A Fan Imagining” as a short live-action production, made the announcement at AFM. They noted that ElfQuest.com, the property’s official website, generates 10 million views a month.

“With their deep love and understanding of the property, they represent a new direction for ‘ElfQuest,'” Wendy Pini said. “New creative energy and new connections in the larger media.”

Warner Bros. had been developing an “Elfquest” movie in recent years but the rights lapsed earlier this year. The comicbook, which launched in 1978, follows a tribe of elves on the distant World of Two Moons who find themselves driven from their forest by humans and then discover something they didn’t know existed: other elves.
